Kelly Rowland Talks About Her Least Favorite Destiny’s Child Song and Kandi Burruss as a Songwriter
Destiny’s Child announced the members were going their separate ways in 2005. Since then we have seen them pursue their solo careers, and have been successful.
Still fans are hoping to see Beyoncé Knowles Carter, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams reunite. Find out what Rowland had to say about that along with her least favorite song they released together.
Kelly Rowland previously said there are no plans for the group to reunite again
Rowland and Williams surprised many by joining Beyoncé on stage for Coachella. They performed some of their hits with “Lose My Breath,” “Say My Name” and “Soldier.”
Many fans hoped to get more of the group together again. However, Coachella seemed to just be a special occasion for them.
Rowland told Us Weekly, that they “haven’t talked about it” and it “hasn’t been on our radar.” She went on to give a reason for that. “Everybody’s, like, basically doing their own projects right now and we’re just supporting each other,” she said.
She said ‘Bug-a-Boo’ is her least favorite
Rowland was a guest on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The host asked her a series a questions and one of them was what is her favorite and least favorite Destiny’s Child song.
“My favorite would have to be anything from the last Destiny Fulfilled album,” she said. “And my least favorite would probably have to be… oh gosh ‘Bug-a-Boo.'”
She went on to give her reasoning. “It’s like this one part on the bridge where I’m like, ‘Ugh,’” she said. Cohen asked if Burruss wrote that song.
“No, Kandi is a brilliant writer. Don’t start no stuff,” she told the talk show host as she wagged her finger at him. Burruss is credited with writing “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Bug-a-Boo.”
Burruss said Mathew Knowles didn’t expect her and her writing partner to come up with anything
The reality star wrote the songs with Kevin “She’kspere” Briggs for the group’s sophomore album. This was after they wrote “No Scrubs.” She said Mathew Knowles didn’t have much faith in them.
“A lot of times, I would already have the hook together and the melody of what the verse should be,” Burruss told Vice. “I left a little open so that they could have input as well. That was kind of our thought process going into this because [Mathew Knowles] really didn’t think we were going to be able to come up with something more than the people he already had in mind.”
She seemed to be understanding about this. Burruss continued, “It was cool because at the time the only song we had playing was ‘No Scrubs.’ I think, at that time, ‘No Scrubs’ was either not released yet or didn’t have enough buzz yet, but, either way, She’kspeare and I were new as a team, so I get that her dad wanted them to work with all the heavy hitters at the time for their second album.”
Burruss has since written many more hits. It sounds like Rowland recognizes her skills but one of those songs is at the bottom of her list of favorites.
